Kick it Out set to ask Newcastle to ban wearing headdresses in St James’ Park after takeover

    Newcastle United taken over by Saudi investment fund

    Last week, many Newcastle fans’ dreams were made a reality when Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign in charge of the Tyneside club came to an end, and the Saudi Public Investment Fund took the reins, backed by a hefty budget.

    Now boasting the richest owners in world football, but sitting in the Premier League relegation zone without a win, the Magpies are sure to spend money in January in order to avoid a somewhat humiliating relegation to England’s second tier.

    Their ownership got off to the worst possible start too, with the Tyneside outfit falling to a 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur inside a combustible St James’ Park in what proved a sour 1000th game in charge for Steve Bruce.

    Kick it Out to meet with Newcastle over headresses

    One of the most iconic visuals of the Newcastle takeover has been Newcastle fans donning headdresses to attend the games.

    Now, however, it appears as though it has caught the attention of Kick It Out, an anti-racism and discrimination organisation. As per Sky Sports, they are demanding “urgent talks” with Newcastle in a bid to get them to discourage the wearing of headdresses, seen as cultural appropriation, in St James’ Park.

    As per Sky:

    “Kick It Out is keen to offer education workshops to fans in the north east to explain why this could be considered stereotypical and culturally offensive.”

    Will this prevent the act from continuing?
